Day Six, 4-6 a.m.
And with that, day six of 24
comes to a close.
The long, national nightmare is finally over and we can maybe move forward in picking up the pieces for a better day next year.
But since this is the last time I will blog about an episode of 24
until January, I have a few things to say...
First of all, didn't we establish in the previous hour that Division had sent over someone new to head up CTU? If that's try then why was Nadia still in charge enough to help Jack and Bill pull off their little steal the helicopter and defeat Phillip Bauer raud? I can't see the new division head letting Nadia keep that much authority that long, especially in light of her loyalty to Bill Buchanan. But if they don't do that, then Chang could get away and take the component with them.
Also, I find it incredibly hard to believe that after all the posturing the Russians did, that they'd just accept the component was blown up on the oil platform. I find this especially hard to accept given how Daniels and company had just spent the better part of the last few hours falsifying information to them to cover up they didn't have the component. I don't quite buy why Suberoff suddenly became so trusting--even given the fact that they were tied into our satellites and watched the whole thing unfold.
Then, there's Phillip Bauer--so we didnt' see him die and there was a boat nearby. Any takers on his surviving and coming back again.
I hope that isn't the case, but the writers did leave that door slightly ajar.
And it just does not pay to be a potential love interest for Nadia. First Milo dies and now Mike is seriously wounded by Phillip Bauer's little trap. If I were a single guy at CTU, I'd be steering clear of her--it's not just Jack who is cursed.
Ah, Jack....what can we say?
Well, at least one good thing came out of it--Jack didn't turn out to be Josh's father. I was really concerned the series would go there in the end, but it didn't. And Jack once again makes the world safe for democracy and then heads off into the sunset. I got the impression Jack was thinking of doing a disappearing act again like he did two years ago (shades of the greatest hits nature of this entire season). But who knows--maybe instead Jack will get a transfer to another office, thus giving us a big reset for the start of season seven.
One thing I would have been interested to see that never happened this year--Kim finds out her dad is alive. It makes me wonder why Phillip was so obsessed with Josh as the grandchild he's going to take to China but he never once tries to go and kidnap Kim. She might have been better leverage against Jack...
But, I am thinking too much and if there's one thing this last day of 24
has taught me, it's that thinking too much doesn't help you enjoy the show more.
At least not this season...
